Welcome to Wild World Wednesday down in The Dungeon!
"World Gone Wild" is a 1987 post-apocalyptic tale of greed and survival. It's a story about two men and their followers! Water is a rare commodity in the future, and everybody wants it!
One guy is Ethan, the stoner leader of the people who have the water in a secluded place in the desert called Lost Wells! 100 years in the future, and he still wears a Zig-Zag man button!
The other guy is Adam Ant as Derek, the leader of a bunch of goons dressed all in white who want the water too!
Derek and Ethan don't like each other for obvious reasons!
This is what Derek has for Ethan!
And this is what Ethan has for Derek!!
The story is loosely based on the classic "Seven Samurai," or "The Magnificent Seven," but it is really hard to imagine Bruce Dern as Yul Brynner, or Adam Ant as Eli Wallach! Also, why is there nudity and foul language in a film that is seemingly otherwise geared for a twelve year old! What the heck? It's a "World Gone Wild," and just like "Girls Gone Wild," it was made to make money, not sense. and I'm pretty sure they lost out in both those departments! If you want to watch a good Bruce Dern movie, then go watch one of his old biker movies or "Nebraska" instead, or just sit around and wait for one of the seven projects he's involved with in 2018! (I might just do that myself!)
